Is the Remote Management policy using Rights authentication or is Password authentication enabled? If the policy is configured for Rights authentication:
Make sure you have Remote Management rights to the device object or user object on which you are performing the remote control operation.
Make sure that the time on all Primary Servers, the database server, and the device are synchronized (within 2 minutes of each other).
Verify the following network and port information for the device:

Verify that port 5950 is open on the device.
If the device cannot be directly accessed from the remote console, configure a Satellite Server with the JoinProxy role to enable remote management to be routed through the Satellite Server.
If you are receiving an encryption error, check thesettings in the Remote Management policy.
Is your zone using the ZENworks internal certificate authority or an external certificate authority? If it uses external certificates, ensure that you specify the correct certificate and keyfile when initiating the remote control session.
